Seth and Becky are old news. Meltzer reported that she was going to live events with him when she wasn't booked and they were spotted several times together outside the company.

I really hate the "Sassy Southern Belle" nickname. Too on the nose. It's like calling Drew McIntyre "That Guy From Scotland".

As a wrestling fan, I need these things broken down and spelled out for me.  Instead of Big Dog, Roman Reigns should really be LARGE MAN WET HAIR

I don't know that it was necessarily "old news" to those of us who don't subscribe to Meltzer's newsletter and/or follow him on social media, but okay.

As for the news itself, I mean... it's a definite upgrade from dating a Nazi, so cheers to him. I feel like she could do better, but that could just be the fanboy in me talking.

Glad this is conveniently official now, perfect timing for them to use it in the Becky/Lacey feud after all the mentions from Becky about Lacey “doing favors”.

I don’t read Meltzer and the Becky and Seth stuff has been public to casuals for a while.  They were cozy at the Hall of Fame this year, it just wasn’t pointed out.

Neither of them had acknowledged it until now but it was "known" by everyone. I don't think it's a big deal either ways guys.

WWE Live Event in Europe today featured Orton vs Aleister Black and WALTER defending the UK Title against R-Truth.  I wish that show was on TV.

Way too much talking on this show.  I can take Miz in small doses, but long talking segment opening the show which sucked then leading to a dead match that only was good when Lashley and Roman were squaring off made for a shit opener.  I did like the beatdown segment/brawl post-match

nit pick:  Miz showing up for his shitty MIZTC+V with gear on is so f'n lame.  A match out of nowhere?!!?  I hate that telegraphed shit, where we're supposed to pretend that we don't know that it's going to be a match.  At least if Miz makes a challenge for a match it makes sense, but whatever.  This F'n sucked.

I'd dig a Lashley-Roman program for SummerSlam.  That's a good battle of the Bulls matchup and they seem to have good in-ring chemistry.  Elias and Miz can fuck off.  They have good characters but I want to see less of them and not in top matchups.

Oh, and I really dug the Cesaro-Rey match a lot.  That was fun.  Those guys, if they work a program, could have MOTY candidate stuff if given the chance to have a program.  It started a little rough, but then damn, it got really good really fast.  Some awesome spots and reversals in this

What's up with Sheamus anyway?

The only other thing I really liked on the show was the stuff with Nikki and Alexa.  That was good for both of them.  Hey, beneficial booking, what a concept!

Its looking more and more like Sheamus will be retiring, read a report the spinal stenosis issue is at play here. He barely was able to work through Mania, so it's probably done for him. That explains Cesaro allowed to be showcased last night in looking like a star vs Rey. That was a highlight of the show, best match for sure. Some of the other bouts too at least were giving workers who normally dont stand out an opportunity, looking more at that womens four way with Dana and Cross getting shine. But then there was Ricochet and Corbin, hated the finish but makes me wonder if they might give Ricochet the MITB this year if he's doing a random loss to fuckin Corbin.

FWIW I thought the show wasnt nearly as offensive as the Raws since the post Mania one, but it wasnt like it was this great show either.

At least the ringwork seemed decent last night and the talking was kind of rollercoastery....some solid build to MITB (womens contract signing in particular was decent) but others like Miz/Roman garbage was just eh. The Bray segment was bonkers in a good way, I'm def interested to see where this goes next. Love the schlocky horror element being brought into this.

Did Braun ever have a "fuck these guys, I don't want to do this job" face coming out to the ring for the main, it was obvious what the result would be. They are done trying with Braun it feels like, and does anyone want to see a Drew/Corbin vs Braun feud be re-ignited? I sure don't. Match itself had all the buttons and whistles to at least be entertaining enough. Braun almost clobbed Renee Young throwing her chair from the booth at the end too, that probably won't do him any favors.

Corbin is just the new Kane. It's easier to accept. He'll be boring forever and dull in the ring, but continue to get push after push because tall. I think Kane was better on the mic though and had a semi interesting gimmick, so this will be worse.

Corbin had a decent enough look, to compensate for the Long Wolf gimmick.  The bartender look he's utilized since being the Constable is doing him zero favors.

Saw a snippet that Wade Keller did an interview either with an anonymous writer or a former writer who stated HHH is probably the more frustrated backstage these days and is constantly seen basically consoling talent backstage - many times the NXT alum.

What is going on with Alexa healthwise?  I liked the match where she couldn't keep her boots tied, but has she been working house shows?  If this is concussion related, at this rate, it seems like she's basically gonna end up forced into early retirement.  They've kept everything quiet but she's barely been in the ring for like a year, comes back for a match here and there and is on the shelf again

She really needs to retire. It's just not worth it if this is another concussion. If they can make room for Paige, surely they can find a non-wrestling spot for Alexa.
